6.2 How to make new sets Let A and B be two sets The union A B = { x : x A x B } ; The intersection A B = { x : x A x B } ; The difference A - B = { x : x A x B } . If a set U is designated as the universal set , the complement of a subset A U is ¯ A = U - A . The power set of A is 2 A = { B : B A } . The symmetric difference A B = ( A - B ) ( B - A ).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
